to new technology. that means huge amounts of money will flow into very poor countries. in fact, all 12 of these african nations are projected to the major oil fires -- players, currently in the bottom half of the u.n.'s human development index. these new exports could inject $3 trillion into their economies. they had a combined gdp in 2011 of just $181 billion. what effect might then have? history tells us it could mean bad news for the people of those countries. that is because when countries suddenly discover a viable resource and receive an influx of cash, they succumb to what is known as the resource curse, wealth inequality surging, corruption running rampant, and democratic institutions and quality of life breaking down. perhaps it is worth noting that of all the developing nations that are now receiving a majority of their earnings from oil and gas, not a single one has a functioning democracy. why does this happen? to answer that question, i was joined earlier by an adjunct professor at georgetown university and the founder of the democracy and conflict research institute. i st
